And here is the the sticker from G4Gunner's Catleap.

The additional information on the sticker in the second picture that reads "For evaluation use only. No guarantee for service after evaluation." , is at least to me a strong indicator that this is indeed a tester panel. And if you think about it from a sellers perspective it isnt really that suprising as they would be able to buy this for a lower price and in the end make a larger profit on it. But for the buyer it could be a cause for concern if you are worried about the consistency and lifetime of the product you just bought.
Is it me, or does the top one look like it has another sticker underneath?

And, yeah, been wondering what "For evaluation use only. No guarantee for service after evaluation" since that pic was posted.
Was 'hoping" it just meant that LG sells them with no warranty other than non-DOA.

If you look the other symbols under the LG Display wording are in the same place on the understicker in the first pic, and the regular sticker in the other.
I'll be cracking my Catleap open on Tuesday probably, so I'll take a look and snap some pics as well. Interested to see if a member had that first sticker, and could possibly take a look at it and see.

Yes you are absolutely right , well spotted of you Demented and MTDEW !

Wouldn't surprise me at all if they are all tester panels scooped up for a bargain price and then sold to overseas buyers for a great profit. And as more Korean sellers join in to fight over potential customers they probably need good margins to be able to compete with lowered prices and still make a profit in the end.

Thanks for that.

Yup , just saw that post myself. It would be interesting if more owners could check the sticker on the back of their panel.

People seem to be getting somewhat bent out of shape on that sticker, and to that I say: Unless you work for LG you have no idea of the intent of the statement on that sticker. Lots of assumptions here.

red-cap seems to be the cheapest... offered me $400 x 3 for the LED-P and $380 for the LED Crossover.

Seems to be the best bet if you care about the looks of the display/stand. It's the cleanest I think.

What do you guys think of the Crossover LED-P compared to the Catleap?

At this point I think it comes down to the stand & bezel. Personally I think the crossover has a beter stand & bezel is a wash
